The return of Neymar sneaks into the presidential election of Barcelona

BARCELONA – Neymar and Barcelona are related again, on the one hand in the courts and, on the other, in the first days of an electoral campaign that has not yet started and in which some candidate for the presidential elections to be held on 24 January has spoken with his close circle, hinting at his interest in signing the Brazilian for next season.

ESPN contacted various candidates to learn first-hand their opinion regarding the possible return of Neymar to Barcelona revealed by the Sport newspaper and if they would have contacted him or his environment about it. There were a majority of negative responses … But it was not a generalized response.

Between Víctor Font’s resounding no and the memory of the yes without doubts that Joan Laporta expressed in April, up to seven candidates for the presidency of the Barça club considered that return …

And despite the rejection caused by many of the Brazilian forward’s figure for his departure and all the legal disputes that have followed since then, there are those who believe, no matter how weakened Barça’s economic situation is, that it is not a utopia to imagine Ney back.

BETWEEN THE COURT …
The Paris Saint-Germain footballer has filed an appeal against the ruling that in June dismissed his lawsuit against the Barça club in which he claimed the payment of 43.6 million euros as a signing bonus for his last renewal in 2016. In said ruling the Social Court 15 of the Catalan city upheld the contrary claim presented by Barça and ordered the player to pay 6-7 million euros.

At the Camp Nou there is evidence of the step taken by Neymar’s lawyers, which must be resolved by the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia, and there is, a source from the Barça club told ESPN, “tranquility” because they understand that the sentence handed down in June was clear enough about it …

In fact, Barça filed another lawsuit against the player this last week in which he claims that he paid more than 12 million dollars for a tax regularization of the payments that were made between 2013 and 2017 in a new chapter that the two live parties in court.

… AND THE ELECTIONS
But, in parallel and surprisingly, even more so considering the current financial situation that Barcelona is going through, Neymar reappeared in a sporting context related to the club. According to information from the journalist Joaquim Piera, some pre-candidates for Barça’s elections have probed the player to find out his future intentions and the options that, if necessary, they would have to study his signing.

Neymar ends his contract with PSG in 2022 and if his renewal is not agreed, the French club could, always conditionally, study his transfer. That is where the figure of Barcelona would enter, a destiny that Ney has always kept on stage … And in which the new president, who emerged from the elections of next January, would play a transcendental role.

ESPN contacted several of the candidates. And the reactions were diverse.

Víctor Font, today the favorite in the polls while waiting for all the pre-candidacies to be made official, is openly against the return of the Brazilian player. “It is past water, I would not sign him,” said the candidate in May in an interview whose opinion was confirmed this past Friday from his own team, a source from which he ruled that Neymar is not in his plans.

“I would defend him not to come”, Toni Freixa resolved in the first person, who considering that it is “implantable” from an economic point of view taking into account the current situation of the club, recalled that Ney “has behaved badly and has pending accounts with Barça “.

“As president, and even though it is interesting from a sporting point of view and perhaps economically feasible, I would argue that no,” summed up Freixa, who was already at the club in the first stage of Laporta and until 2015 was part of Bartomeu’s team.

Neither Agustí Benedito nor Xavi Vilajoana wanted to refer to this possible return of Neymar. The first hid behind “not talking about names”, referring more to the global project of his candidacy, while a source from the Vilajoana team preferred not to make any mention of the issue.

“He was wrong when he left and we do not consider a possible return as a priority,” explained Pere Riera, who clarifying that the Brazilian “is a great player” understands that possible return “very difficult. It would depend on many factors, including the economic situation and your own environment. “

On the other side of the scale, favorable to a return of Neymar, there are two candidates. Joan Laporta, who has not yet formalized a presentation that is expected to be effective before the end of this month of November, proclaimed in April that Ney would “be safely recovered” and in the last hours various journalistic information, not confirmed but not denied to ESPN by people close to the former president, affirmed that he has discussed such a possibility with the Brazilian player’s environment.

Jordi Farré, for his part, assured in the first person that the signing of Ney “would depend on several factors”, showing himself open to that possibility. “We always open the door to top-level players and he is,” explained the promoter of the vote of no confidence, noting that Neymar “should publicly apologize for everything that happened and withdraw all the lawsuits filed against the club. .. From there, if it were economically possible and had the support of the sports commission, it could be studied. “

Barcelona starts a new legal conflict with Neymar, from whom he claims 12 million dollars

BARCELONA – Barcelona has started another legal conflict with Neymar, from whom it claims the payment of 12 million dollars for a tax regularization of the payments made between 2013 and 2017, an authorized source from the Barça club explained to ESPN Deportes. specifying information from the newspaper El Mundo, according to which he had been paid that extra amount by mistake.

The transactions, according to Barça, were carried out following “the criteria of the state and which were in accordance with a labor and non-commercial relationship (48 percent and not 24 percent). When the last inspection was finished, with the regularizations, confirmed the difference and from there they claim those 10.2 million euros “, refers from the entity.

According to the Tax Agency, Neymar benefited from an ‘unfair enrichment’ since Barcelona paid him a much higher gross amount than he was entitled to based on the net contract negotiated between the two parties, the surplus entering the player.

Five months after the court sentenced Neymar to pay $ 7.5 million to Barcelona as a result of the lawsuits filed by the two parties on account of the renewal premium that had been agreed in 2016, the club claims these $ 12 million from him. dollars when understanding that he withheld less taxes when obtaining the reason by the Treasury, through a claim, “which is already in progress” was specified from the Camp Nou, due to excess payment and to avoid being considered a donation to the soccer player.

In this way Neymar, who maintains a debt with the Spanish treasury close to 41 million dollars and faces a new judicial conflict with Barcelona, ​​whose ranks it was speculated during the last years would have wanted to return and that, today , a possibility ruled out is understood, every time he negotiates the renewal of his contract with PSG.

Edmilson, former Barcelona player, criticizes Neymar and turns to Mexico with his new project

In an interview with ESPN, former footballer Edmilson spoke about the behavior of the Brazilian soccer leader, Neymar, and his new team to train players to target other emerging markets.

World Champion with the Selection of Brazil in 2002 and with a successful stage in Barcelona,Edmílson es presidente del Futebol Clube Will Brazil, team that competes in the B series (fourth division) of the Paulista Championship.

The idea of ​​the former defender and defensive midfielder of the XV of Jaú, Sao Paulo, Lyon, Villarreal, Palm Trees, Zaragoza Y Ceara is to train players for the main Brazilian and international clubs. But the concern goes beyond the courts. The negative example that the former athlete is currently seeing is precisely a Brazilian reference: Neymar.

“Our greatest idol, who is more the root of Brazilian soccer, is Neymar. He is a crack on the field, but he performs actions off the field that damage the image of the player and of Brazilian football. He is an outstanding guy, there is no player on the world market today with such a repertoire of dribbling, improvisation and confrontation as he. It’s just not complete. He could play 10 years as the best in the world with his foot on his back. In repertoire of dribbles it is even superior to Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, but he doesn’t have that balance as a professional soccer player, “he told ESPN.com.

Edmílson He says that the idea is to rescue the essence of footballers.

“We have a vision of making players to Brazil and the world. Brazil is only thinking of selling the € 10 million player to Europe, but has other markets, such as Mexico and Asia. We have been training bad players in Brazil. We want to help them have respect on the world stage on and off the field. “

Will Brazil It has a training center in Santana de Parnaíba, but plays the games at the José Liberatti stadium, in Osasco, also in the state of Sâo Paulo.

“We made an alliance with the old Osasco FC and hired a school to put everything we had in mind. It is like entering a university and knowing what will be applied in the coming years. The boy who joins a club in Brazil does not know what it will do until it reaches the U-20 team. If it works, it will work; if it doesn’t, it’s out. “

The name of the club is derived from a Jamaican musical rhythm.

“We have partners and a partnership with a Japanese group called Skylight. We wanted to put Sky Brasil, but we would have problems with the name. Ska It is a Jamaican rhythm that combines with the three axes of our team: improvisation, creativity and confrontation. This helps to show that the Brazilian player has always been different because he has a very strong ‘one on one’ and is capable of improvising in a difficult game situation “.

The team coach is Leandro Mehlich, who went through Santos and Corinthians.

“We have our game model that is implemented from U-7 to U-23. I have the entire educational curriculum and what the boy will do from the first day until the end of the year. I see that many current coaches only want to promote and not train Players. Playing football in Brazil is expensive and you have to plan expenses to get results. “

“Our working method is unique. There is no club without planning. We study management and hire people who have the identity and profile of what we are looking for. I don’t want to invent anything, but you can do something different within our culture.”

The team of Edmílson is in Group 7, next to Barcelona-SP, Mauá, Jabaquara and Mauaense. After two defeats in the first dates, the team won the first game in its history, beating the Barcelona 7-0.

“The idea is to have that patience to grow. Our goal is to train the athletes before the result. We did not have the idea of ​​going to professional football this year, but due to the pandemic, as we will not have the base, we started working on the Serie B del Paulista, “he explained.
